class middle class voters as a demo brafic have turned hard on obama across the country. iowa, they are particularly pronounced in that state. a lot more for romney to work with. your point is key, i mentioned this last week on the show. in the 1980s iowa was an exception. the national economy was strong. farm economy collapsed in iowa and iowa took it out on george bush sr. we might see the opposite where the economy is weak in a lot of places but stronger in iowa. >> iowa voted for revenge. interesting. >> great reason to vote. >> to your point that's why the social consciences that's why mike huckabee and rick santorum do well in iowa. i don't think obama or romney are well suited to iowa. did i just say ohio? i meant iowa. >> iowa. >> anyway, i don't think eat of those candidates are particularly well suited because there's a strong populace strain in iowa politics. i ultimately do have it going blue if you look at the polls. romney has never led in iowa, interestingly even though as you pointsed out the democrats held a slight advantage in voting in registration numbers
obama cast himself in the same bipartisan way that appealed to independent voters four years ago. >> over the last four years, the status quo in washington has fought us every step of the way. >> reporter: it would be unusual for a democratic president to actually suggest it would be okay with him if voters went for a congressional candidate other than a democrat. but, eager to paint himself as not part of the problem in washington, the president did just that at every stop. >> as long as i'm president, you know, i've said i will work with anybody of any party to move this country forward. if you want to break the gridlock in congress, you'll vote for leaders who feel the same way whether they're democrat, republican or independent. >> reporter: president obama seemedized and confident today. he actually did a little jig at this last stop here in lima, ohio. obama campaign officials are talking up their early voting program, years in the making. with republicans more reliable election day voters, the argument goes, democrats have built up a bank of early votes, ones that make win
whether reproductive rights is a decisive issue for women voters this year. >> it is for the barack obama campaign. they think that's the way they're going to keep their women. suggest that women would vote about who's going to pay for their contraception, that is more of an issue than are my loved ones working, am i working, are my kids going to have an opportunity when they graduate from clege. >> the president especially lately, as of late, he has said, you know, look, he doesn't believe that men should be legislating women's bodies and he supports, uh, he really supports women in that way in making sure that they have what they need. with, you know, the different characters out there, making statements about rape and about abortion and how they feel about it and he basically says, you know, look, we should not be deciding that. >> and the experts' views on swaying undecided women voters? >> this election is about the future, it's about how we move forward. i think it is important for women to really get informed, look at these four people that we're talking about, talking about legisl
foundation. >> this week on "to the contrary" president obama regains solid support among women voters just before the election. >> hello, i'm bonnie erbe. welcome to "to the contrary," a discussion of news and social trends from diverse perspectives. up first, the last-minute scuffle for voters: the ground game. early voting. cell phone polls and women voters dominated the final days of the presidential race. a late week "new york times" poll showed the gender gap re-emerge knowledge in president obama's favor. 52% of women and 44% of men support obama. while the g.o.p.'s mitt romney has 44% of women and 51% of men in his corner. women voters in battleground states are the coveted demographic according to two campaign experts. >> i think if you look at the president has done with the economy, it is very far reaching, just across the country women have access to capital to start small business, let's not forget his very, very first bill that he signed in to law was lily ledbetter fair pay act. it's a tremendous accomplishment. i think that shows his devotion and his commitment to women. >>
president obama leading. with the margin of error and undecided voters, it is a statistical tie. >> we what is at stake in virginia. the team fighting to win the stage again. >> the president ended his campaign in virginia and kicks off this campaign. it is where he takes his wife for ballantine's -- valentine's. you have the city behind me. >> are you fired up? are you ready to go? >> the chant is the same. >> four more years! >> how do you accomplish that? aside from constant visits. we have had 20 since june. dance with the one who brought you, an age old adage. that is women, young voters, and minorities. >> i do not believe we can get far with leaders of that right off half addiction -- half the nation as a bunch of victims. i see hard-working virginians. >> the president has relied on women and with the first lady's help also holds a double-digit lead thanks to the commitment by supporters. >> we have to realize that the next president could very well choose a couple of supreme court justices. >> there is synergy among the young. >> i think that at my -- kids my age are not going to g
reconsidered his position. president obama would be speaking to crowd after crowd in swing states if it hadn't been for the storm. he has less than a week to convince undecided voters. most americans have already examined his record over the past four years. he started his term with a sentiment offered by many of those who came before him. >> that america can change. our union can be perfected. >> many americans have grown tired of what their country was come to represent under george w. bush. obama promised to change at home and abroad. he brought an end to the war in iraq. he said u.s. combat forces would pull out of afghanistan by the end of 2014. and he promised to decimate al qaeda. >> after a firefight, they killed osama bin laden and took custody of his body. we can say to those families who lost loved ones to al qaeda's terror justice has been done. >> some argue obama has not met expectations in the mideast. he faced persistent trouble with a come dominant region in iran. still he has focused foreign policy to make it more multilateral. part of what he calls a broader shift. >> afte
lin on early -- headline on early voting obama leads solid with early voters. democrats turn out in key states. that is the "washington times." let me show you the "washington post" headline on early voting. g.o.p. improve its showing in early voting. republicans performing better than in 2008 though still lag lined democrats in -- behind democrats in nevada, iowa, north carolina, florida, et cetera. the battle ground states which is our focus and has been on the "washington journal" looking at those nine swing states. deep dive into the states talking to people on the ground there and what they will see on election night, what they can expect and what is the tenor of the campaigns in those states. we will continue with that today with a focus being on colorado coming up in about five minutes or so. we will keep taking your phone calls about the trust in government during natural disasters. hal is next from florida, republican. caller: i have lived on the beach all my life in florida and hurricanes have come through and we had to evacuate many times. i remember in hurricane dora
states a tougher challenge for romney. obama campaign officials argue polls of early voters in battleground states suggest their bank of obama votes means romney will have to win on election day well more than half the votes in key states to win. but the president is not relying solely on early voting or even on this new rekindled bipartisan pitch. in this state alone, diane, president obama and his allies have run 16,000 more ads than romney and his allies. and if that's not enough for you, on monday, president obama will be back here in ohio with bruce springsteen. diane? >> okay, thank you, jake. >>> and also tonight, the latest in our brand new daily abc news/"washington post" polls. tonight, the poll gives mitt romney a one-point edge. so, we asked abc's david muir to tell us his strategy for the final sprint. >> reporter: mitt romney bolting through the battlegrounds. today, on the campaign plane, it was the candidate taking pictures. romney capturing images of his staff sneaking a nap, as romney faces to the finish. in just the last 24 hours, virginia -- >> virginia,

(cheers and applause) yes. elusive, mysterious undecided voters. i wonder what he's thinking. (laughter) or if. (laughter) folks, folks, here's how it stands. the electoral kitchen is closing in two weeks and they still can't decide if they want the black-and-white cookie or the decaf wheat thin. (laughter) they're elusive! but we know that they're out there! these campaigns have spent billions of dollars trying to capture them with lawn signs, t.v. ads, radio spots, internet banners, robocalls and, for some lucky ohio voters, an amorous david axelrod with a rose in his teeth. (laughter) but a few and the liesing facts about these mysterious creatures have emerged. >> undecided voter they say typically a single white female between 18 and 29 years old, she has a job with a low income, she did not graduate from college. according to this poll she skipped watching the debate. >> stephen: fascinating. the person who will decide this race is a likely voter wh

(laughter) >> stephen: yes, they yearn. (cheers and applause) yes. elusive, mysterious undecided voters. i wonder what he's thinking. (laughter) or if.

that is in the top five for voters in colorado? guest: no. for voters who are opposed to the obama administration, it makes their top five, but the top five for most people, three out of those spots are the economy, the economy, the economy. after that it would be energy and social issues, women's access to health care being chief among them. host: curtis hubbard, thank you so much for your time this morning. guest: thanks for having me. host: our look cut this topic will continue with the republican strategist john turner and then later with. >> as we approach the election day, c-span is asking middle and high school students to send a message to the president. in a short video students what i ask the question was the most important issue the president is facing in 2013. the studentcam video competition is open to kids aged 6-12. the deadline is january 18, 2013. find out more at studentcam.org. >> these are the stories that your textbooks left out. they are great stories in american history. the first program came up to 50 sale. before the mayflower sel there were french. they made wine. they h
this morning. president obama with a six-point lead among likely voters in ohio. the numbers you see there, 51% to 45%. then going on to florida, the president gets support from 49% of likely voters. mitt romney, very close behind with 47%. let's go now to the latest on governor romney's campaign stops today. he starts off with a rally coming up in just about two hours, 9:00 a.m. nbc's peter alexander is in new hampshire. good morning to you, peter. >> alex, good morning to you. we're on the tarmac here now in new hampshire, specifically just a short time from now this is going to fill up with a big crowd greeting mitt romney and then sending him on his wail for what will be an exhaustive weekend. beginning here in new hampshire, he makes stops in iowa, colorado, back to iowa, ohio, pennsylvania, a state the republicans are hoping to pick off from president obama, and then virginia. and that's just saturday and sunday, and he will sleep sunday night in florida, believe it or not. yesterday night, quite a scene, the largest crowd we've seen all campaign for governor romney, close to 30,000 peop
voters and say donate to the red cross. i think obama campaign's said to the folks in these states. this is our chance to do that. they probably have enough money to deal with this. we learned in 2005 with katrina, if the federal response is sluggish or looks unprepared for this, that's a worse damage to the president than anything else, and i think that the president has to do this. he's canceled four events in four states over the next two days. right now he's scheduled to go to green bay at the end of the tuesday. we'll see if that happens. probably unlikely. he may start again on wednesday when he's supposed in ohio. >> although to his benefit you could argue in some of the key states, places like new york and new jersey and connecticut, they're very strong governors there who are experienced with this stuff and unlikely to fumble the response. we'll see how that goes. let's bring in congresswoman marcia blackburn, a republican from tennessee. what impact do you think this storm will have to the presidential race? >> i'm not certain that it's going to have any direct impact. i
a vote against barack obama. a lot of those voters will say, barack obama is -- we can't afford four more years of this guy. they'll go with mitt romney. mitt romney has done a good job attacking through the middle. there's a lot more enthusiasm with republican voters. i haven't totaled polls. i've looked at them. my guys are smiling, too. i think ohio is going to go romney's way and i think that it's going to be one of those things that if you have somebody like rob portman working so closely with the romney campaign leading the charge, very popular senator, i think they'll do well in ohio. >> john, you have been getting bad press, the republicans have for this new ad running in ohio. let me play a little bit of it for you. >> who will do more for the auto industry? not barack obama. obama took gm and chrysler into bankruptcy and sold chrysler to italians who are going to build jeeps in china. mitt romney will fight for every american job. >> chrysler thought that ad was so misleading they put out a statement making the point that, in fact, they're adding 1100 jobs in detroit and any jee
tonight. both sides are trying out their final pitches to voters. president obama picked up new york city mayors michael bloomberg's endorsement today. after taking time now to deal with super storm sandy, the president made stops in wisconsin, nevada, and colorado. mitt romney try to keep his momentum going with a stop in virginia. a new poll shows the president has a statistically significant lead over mitt romney in iowa. >> is -- we're talking about same-sex marriage referendum question. we asked david collins to find out what is true and what isn't. >> is gay marriage happens here, schools could teach that boys can merry boys. >> this claim is false. question six has nothing to do with public school curriculum. it recognizes same-sex marriage. a pretax clergy from having to perform marriage -- it protect clergy from having to perform marriage ceremonies. >> after massachusetts redefine marriage, local schools taught to children and the second grade. courts ruled parents had no right to take their children out of class. >> this claim is misleading. they're referring to a case for a se
from mitt romney to president obama. a voter in marion county ohio outraged she had to try multiple times to get her vote to count for mitt romney. >> that is knotted w-- not who voting for. i don't know if it happened to anybody else or not. this is the first time in all the years we have voted that this has ever happened to me. >> the board of elections says the machine was inspected and recalibrated. several voters experienced similar problems in north carolina in recent weeks. >>> $250 million in tax payer money created 48 jobs that created jobs at a gre-- 400 job. 408 total jobs were created. that's over 300,000 dollars for each job and the company has since gone bankrupt. the energy department says there are more positions than the data base shows. senators say it appears proper research was not done before giving the grant. >>> talk about making a big catch. look at this. great white shark caught off manhattan beach peier in california. it is between 7 and 8 feet long. the shark was released back into the ocean. but this is the second time this year that a great white was cau
the economy has been adding about an average of zero hundred and 73 jobs per month. president obama facing voters with the highest and of an array of any incumbent since fdr. the rate picked up because more people without jobs got back into the workforce and started looking for work. now they are counted as unemployed again. with a solid gains and the number of american hired dow futures are climbing out of 26 points at the opening bell. >> the ipad mini those on set a atm at the app stores. all pre orders have been sold out for some time. if you go to order today it will still take about two- three weeks to ship. if you want on today you have to go to an ipad store can stand in line. will tran is live in palo alto. >> you will have to stand in line with is not as crazy as the iphone release. people and line will show that to you in a few moments. you can see the mini ipad is so close. it is like a steak and people are hungry and salivating and will not be able to get their hands on it for a couple of hours. they can say they earn it because the line you can see we have about 40-25 and lin
think what we saw between chris christie and barack obama yesterday is exactly what voters say they want. they want politicians who are able to work together. and it's certainly what the country needs. and it's what financial markets, frankly, are looking at washington for more of, an ability to get things done by crossing the aisle. >> so watching the news conference of chris christie and president obama, i was online as well, and sometimes i end up on twitter. i shouldn't look. but there were some really vitriolic comments about president obama and chris christie and why would chris christie do this. willie, i was surprised by that. even those on the far right, i would think they know that chris christie is not a pawn. he's not a puppet. they would know that he's not some sort of partisan idiot. he's a politician who runs the state of new jersey. he's going to do what's best for his state. did we not know that about him before? >> he's trying to get federal aid. and if that required a little rubbing the back of the president of the united states, he thought so be it. do you believe any
likely independent voters romney defeats obama 46% to 439%. the president hats improved 5 points since october. here is something interesting among extremely interested voters 53% to 42%. now on the question of favorability. just about tied. president obama 52%. governor romney 51%. poet have 56% unfavorable rating. fox news also asked the folks if the obama administration has tried to mislead americans about the attacks on libya. 44% say yes. 47% say no. full-timably president obama's hand links of libya. 47% approve. 47% disprove. much of the mainstream libya has covered the president over libya and the issue has not gained big time traction. fox news correspondent catherine herridge reports she reviewed a cable sent why by the u.s. mission to the secretary of state hillary clinton on august 16th. it went to mrs. clinton's office. it stated americans in benghazi did not believe the consulate could be defended against a coordinated attack. of course on 9/11 there were coordinated terrorist attacks that killed ambassador christopher stevens and three other americans. it is clear the ob
. >> interesting time for young voters. you know if they voted for president obama for the first time when they were voting for the first time for four years they seemed a very different work force. do you see political case changing. i imagine and don't know but from your registered voters it probably skews democrat versus republican. >> it does. we just did some polling on young people and where they are at right now. it looks like the president maintains his advantage among young people so among registered and likely voters it's about two to one for the president. but the real question is those young republicans who have come up and have been engaged in the primary campaign who are supporting romney, they could turn out just as easily as those who are supporting the president. and whether or not they turn out and which of the young voters turn out could make a critical difference in who becomes the next president. >> is the economy the biggest concern of these young voters? >> yeah, it still is. the top concern is jobs for the young people and the economy. but when we dig in it's really
times" poll, conventional wisdom is obama would struggle with white working-class voters in ohio anyway, not in virginia. but in ohio he's even with romney among white voters who do not have a college degree. that's very important. >> and by the way, i think he's up, what, 30% in florida? >> 30. >> he's up 30 points, willie, in florida among white voters. but in ohio, he's dead even. >> dead even. florida and virginia. >> and virginia. >> 30 points. >> think about how much of the negative bain advertising took place this summer you still see it in the numbers, doesn't care about people like me. romney's numbers are still upside down. people say governor romney doesn't care about people like them. that is still the result of a summer of pummeling in ohio by the obama campaign and the democratic super pacs which worked ohio harder, knowing that the state could be a firewall, knowing that they could hold the electoral map and take ahold of ohio. they hit him harder there than anywhe anywhere. you still see that in the internals in terms of romney's image in that state. >> i said they have
. >> reporter: with just nine days left, the race is as close as ever. a point dramatized in a new obama ad, reminding voters that the 2000 race was decided by a mere 537 votes in florida. >> this year, if you're thinking your vote doesn't count, that it won't matter, well, back then, there were probably at least 537 people who felt the same way. >> reporter: and mitt romney has picked up the endorsements of two iowa newspapers that supported obama last time. one that hasn't supported a republican since richard nixon. with the storm coming and the race so tight, both campaigns are trying to bank as many votes as possible in states with early voting. with lines especially long in virginia and maryland. the superstorm has not stopped this campaign. mitt romney is just finishing up his third event today in ohio. he will be campaigning in three states tomorrow. the president will be on the trail, also, campaigning in florida. david? >> it will be a tricky balance. jon karl tonight, thank you. >>> when we come back here this evening, the other big event this week, halloween. so, tonight, one spe
, an unusually high percentage of pennsylvania voters approved obama's job performance -- 53% of them. democrats can feel probably a little reassured -- it is difficult to imagine a president with that high again approval rating -- of an approval rating in this environment getting thrown out, getting rejected. caller: he covers politics for the "philadelphia inquirer." the poll out this morning -- results available online. thank you for being with us. let's give back your phone calls. mike joins us from pennsylvania, democrat line. good morning. caller: good morning. my question is, with the controversy around the voter i.d. issue, the republican legislature suppressing turnout, do you think this will in any way suppress turnout and, if so, will it be enough to effect the margins in any way? thanks. host: thanks for the call. guest: last march, the legislature passed a law that requires pennsylvania voters to show up with one of six approved photo id is. if you did not have one in the meantime, the state would provide you with one. you had to go through certain procedures to get a photo id. more

be in play. it's an overwhelmingly white state. we know that obama's struggling with white voters. a state obama won by ten points last time and keep in mind that means it's closer than wisconsin, pennsylvania, closer than a whole bunch and closer than nevada, states recognized as battlegrounds and a democratic history and makes it difficult for romney and not hard to see why the combination of results of a last few elections and the state's demographics could put it in play. other hand, polls show obama ahead and 50%. the campaigns have an investment there and they don't take the evidence of a strong race and inclined to think although minnesota is closer than people think it's probably not going romney's way. >> nate, let's talk about ohio. the sort of premier swing state. you have made the point of a state filled with white working class voters and elsewhere turned on obama in four years and if they had in ohio like they have elsewhere this would be a pretty easy romney feat and obama's ahead by a few points and been a consistent leap. i want to run a number that jumped out at me from t
, it shows how much that auto bail out helps president obama with the voters in ohio and iowa. among non college white men in those states is higher than the other states anderson. >> hum, hinting. appreciate that. i spoke about that earlier. what is your biggest priority right now? >> well, getting power back up. i think we have done a good job on search and rescue. there may be elements of that. but the national guard has done a great job. getting lights on. changes people's quality of life and gets business up again and gets kids back into skuxt it is school. >> what was your meeting like with the president? >> great koocoordination with t state and the federal government and the administration. i said to the president we have to think outside of the box. can we use military transport. great, can we transport them in a c-130 can you help the utility companies get the sub station generating that would open up a lot of use. thinking outside of the box and cutting through the bureaucracy. >> do you have an idea of how when power would be restored? >> we have been on with the utility comp
and the like tim kane better than his opponent. are there similar voters for obama and george allen? i am sure there are. i never met one of them. but i will say this -- george allen, despite what happened in 2006, he has won from time to time in running for statewide office 15% of the african- american vote. there would be a case in some precincts where you find some obama-allen voters. it will be interesting to see what the ticket-splitting pattern is. i can clearly see and most observers have come across the same thing, i can clearly see a band of voters who vote for mitt romney who also would for tim kaine. host: finally a tweet -- major force in the republican party. they strongly support people like our current attorney general ken cuccinelli. a major force in the republican party. they could easily dominate any republican convention. we've got a convention picking the republican nominee for governor, lieutenant governor, an attorney general to be held next spring. you can expect a tea party influence to be high. are they at all influential with the democrats? of course not. do they comm
, obama is in favor with those early voters. ohioans have cast more than a million ballots and we're seeing in virginia, nevada and ohio, hundreds of thousands of ballots tasked and obviously in nevada, more than 50% of the electorate has already voted early. experts say that early voting has really changed the face of elections. listen. >> when you have 35 to 40% of the entire electorate voting early, some of them voting in september, much less october, early november, it's going to transform a presidential election. that's what we've seen. every day is now election day. >> with some states continuing early voting really right up to election day, we'll learn which party benefited. however, both president obama and governor romney say that they have the advantage with early voters. so both of them continue to encourage their base to get out and vote early. gregg, back to you. >> gregg: elizabeth, thanks very much. stick with fox news election night. complete coverage beginning here on the fox news channel at 6:00 p.m. tuesday with megyn kelly and bret baier. you can catch shepard
voters in ohio was president obama. he had to produce a photoid to vote. help me to understand recognizable person in the entire united states of america has to show his photoid why is it too much to ask that for the rest of that. most of them gave up the licenses and passport. if chicago requires voters id. those who say we ain't got voters fraud going on around here, they must have missed the powerful and disturbing reports filed by eric shawn who exposed voters fraud in multiple states. eric reportod hudson hallum a sitting democrat who pled guilty vodka voting scheme ited his father and city council and even a police officer. the u.s. attorney appointed by barak obama and eric holder got the guilty pleas and the resignation. it is just people don't usually get caught. in virginia this we're. patrick moran was forced to resign from his father's campaign after an undercover video showing young moran aiding and abetting fraud and get ballots and using forged documentings. i joked that you ought fovote early and often. but i never meant for people to take that literally. a frau
the hurricane, you had romney 51 and obama 46%. that's your voter model. you still think that's going to hold after the hurricane? >> yes. and in fact, one of the thing that's not being discussed much, what we've seen all through september is -- and much of october was obama outspending romney, especially in the battleground states. and in the last couple of days as they've gone more positive on their tv as opposed to negative, and basically more even playing field, you have a candidate, romney, who has actually become more popular, more favorable with the electorate, and i think this is actually going to end up benefiting him. and i saw some indication of that in the data. >> why do you think that? today when i saw president obama with governor chris christie, i thought he looked really presidential. it was a great moment for him. he looked deeply in command of a lot of facts about how the federal government could help. i mean, this was no -- you're doing a good job moment. i mean, it was just the opposite. >> doing your job, you'll get a great deal of credit. that's not what's driving this
